5:06 am
made for this kind of thing to happen. because look, there is a gas station that's open all night. you can even see somebody outside right now. but look at the kohl's. the doors don't face oxford valley road. so when you walk up to these front doors, you see where he smashed in, because it is all boarded up now, look how he has the gas station is gone, and then look once you're back here, nobody can see you. and out in the parking lot, there is no surveillance cameras, nothing 24 hours over there. you can hear even he has this blaring music to almost quiet the sound of the sledgehammer smashing all of the glass. let's look at the surveillance video police put out. hoping somebody somehow recognizes this guy. it is not just the guy you might recognize, but the construction equipment he uses. a major size sledgehammer that usually only demolition and contractors workers use, and then he's got that construction type canvas bag. i won't even know where to buy one of these bags. but he has this canvas bag
5:07 am
that usually carries tools of construction workers. and he smashes through the two sets of front doors, smashes the jewelry cases, and notice he's never in a hurry, it seems, he just casually walk over to the jewelry case, and casually walked out. >> there is the sledge hammer. >> really? >> ya. >> he got like up to a hundred thousand dollars in stuff. >> oh, my word. >> isn't that crazy? >> wow. that's craze. >> i you hadn't heard about it, snow. >> no, no, i had not, no, i hadn't. >> while they're hearing about it now. and the other thing that guy had going for him on the other side of the kohl's, on the opposite end, where the gas station was, nothing but dark woods. and out here in the parking lot, a clean get away. because the parking lot doesn't even deadened. we've noticed this is like a thorough fair. so people drive-thru this parking lot. you can see those truck
5:08 am
headlight on the other side. so he had an easy get away. police don't even know which way he got a way, because no surveillance cameras outside, or in the parking lot. so they don't even know what kind of vehicle he drove up in. chances are he didn't bike over here or walk over here with the big sledgehammer. thing probably ways 30 pounds itself, not something you carry to up this place, karen, thomas? >> that's the truth. steve, thanks. in other news from bethlehem, dozens of families finally back in their homes after the massive sinkhole and gas leak forced them out yesterday. firefighters detect add strong natural gas odor inside several homes wednesday, lot of concern, fire officials say they had to get 30 people out of their homes and four block area was closed to traffic. we spoke with one couple. >> right now you feel safe. but through our minds we're thinking okay, what about the rest of the area here? is this area in good shape? i was really scared.
